thanks for your testimonies and additional explanations, the machine is an old classic with rigid frame and rear steering axle, it looks like a telehandler, the central arm I think is subjected to torsion in the effort phase, we would need a machine "combat battle "efficient rebuttal a handyman easy to repair and to find spare parts

When I was in the RE in the mid 80s we had a couple of these muir hills, 1 had the backactor, which I think was made by massey ferguson, the other had a large winch on the rear. Both machines were soon replaced by Volvo 4400s, and jcb 3cx/mf backhoe loaders

The Muir Hill A5000 were built primarily as loaders and were never telescopic. Quite well thought of in their day and competed with the Chaseside, Bray and Weatherill loading shovels.

thanks for your additional information, I think you also agree that as a design and size looks like a first series telehandler, am I wrong? Thank you for your intervention and your opinions
